“Good location, clean and quiet”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This was a very nice hotel. The room and bathroom were clean and I would say the location is good because it is close to a metro station. However, bear in mind that you have to walk to the station and it's not under cover at all, so if you are going in the rainy season, you should be aware that you will need an umbrella.
They have a public bath (onsen) and that is quite an experience -- very hot water!!! It's excellent after a long day of walking!
Would I come back? Yes. But there are many other hotels to try first :)

"+" The hotel was perfect clean , with very helpful staff ( have one person who understands English little bit ) and tasty various European breakfast. Very quite area around but with some good restaurants. It' s really close (about 10-15 min walking) to Fish market ,Tokyo tower and to transport stations(5 min).Also there are a pleasant comfortable bed and pillow )))
"-" The same size of rooms for 2 and for 3 people, so the rooms for 3 people was so terrible small (we couldn't move). The hotel has a Japan bath ( open till 1am), but there not swimming pool ( you don't need bathing).

Room Tip: If you 're not smoking person book a non-smoke floor & room. They didn't use a deodorant...

We stayed in the hotel for aweek and enjoyed nice location as well ascwell kept room. Room was quite compact but we knew that. We arroved to Hanada airport and there was a direct train from there to nearby Daimon Station. And next to Daimon was very handy Yamanote line JR Station. Shimbashi was also notvfar away. Hotel was modern and served reasonably good breakfast buffet with both western and oriental elements.
Only minus was laundry, where some stains were left to trousers and no explanation was given - full charge. Anyone who has ever done any laundry, would have felt that material was linen and there fore bleach could have been used.

Mitsui Garden would be on the level of say a Hampton Inn in America of course the rooms are 1/4 the size in Tokyo but they function better. This is a step up from the business hotel chain Keio Presso. The beds are softer, room has a coffee maker, mini-fridge, hair dryer and in-room pants press. We had a double room which had enough room to store two bags, a desk with chair plus lounge chair and a small closet for about 5 pieces of clothing. For business the room had free, reliable in room wi -fi and adjustable air conditioning. We could get the room cool enough to sleep. It did not lock at 68F. The bathroom size was fine - it had a tub and shower with detachable head. Towels were thin. They had basket on counter with razor, toothbrush, etc in case you forgot. The hotel buffet did not look good and it was expensive so we skipped it. Elevators were fast - ours has three. They held our luggage on day of checkout. The location was easily walkable (about 8 min) to Hamatsucho or Shimbashi station (both on Yamanote JR line). Also Daimon subway station was right next to Hamatsucho. Shiodome is a new neighborhood so it doesn't have a lot of charm but the location was convenient and much quieter than Shibuya or Shinjuku for example. There are a lot of food options by the stations. Family Mart around the corner and a Pronto coffee a few blocks away as well. My two negatives were the pillows (like a thin rock) and second that I booked with otel.com. I got a good rate but I could not choose non-smoking and in Tokyo that is a major problem because almost all hotels are still half and half so we were on a smoking floor and the room smelled like an ashtray. Beware. Otherwise I would recommend this as a good business hotel option in Tokyo at the right price.

Booking this hotel was confusing. I thought I had scored a real bargain. Different booking sites showed very different prices for the "Mitsui Garden Hotel" in Tokyo. On the map both seemed to be in the same place, yet the prices varied wildely. So I was eager to book via the cheaper site, ready to enjoy some luxury and feel smug for having paid so little.

Now that I'm actually in the hotel I understand. "Mitsui Garden" is a chain of hotels. They have one hotel in Shiodome, which is on the edge of the "Ginza" area. There's another Mitsu Garden hotel mere minutes away actually in Ginza. The latter is seriously expensive, the hotel in Shiodome is of average price.

The Mitsu Garden of Shiodome is located in a neighbourhood with houses in European style. The pharse "little Italy" would overdo it, but there are several Italian restaurants, an Italian supermarket and some Italian themed shops here. The Mitsui Hotel doesn't have a restaurant of its own, but on the base floor (connected to the central lobby) is a buffet restaurant. And yes, it is Italian style. For those not so keen on a daily dose of cheese, pizza and olive oil there's a "Natural Lawson" supermarket next door. Very convenient!

A walk to Ginza mainstreet takes about ten to fiveteen minutes. Mitsui Garden Shiodome is located between Shiodome stationa and Daimon station (the latter is also known as Hamamatsucho). Both require a 5 minute walk. That's not so bad every day, but when you have heavy luggage or in bad weather a hotel right on top of a station might be more convenient.

While this Mitsui Garden isn't very luxurious, it doos look new, clean and stylish. The designers managed to set an elegant, modern theme which continues in the room. The room is compact, but there's enough space around the bed(s) for big suitcases. And then there's enough space for a desk and lazy chair as well. Some Tokyo hotels offer far less space for more money. Wifi and cable Internet are available for free. The connection speed is very low during the evening; in the morning and mid day speed is okay.

The room is very well equiped, all basic things one expects at this price are there. Some noticeable things: the window in the room actually opens, which I found very pleasant. Every day roomservice brings two complimentary bottles of water to the room. There's a handy phone charger on the room, so one does not have to fiddle around with adapters.

The cons: be aware that beds in Japan are generally hard and the beds in the Mitsui Hotel are even harder than average in Japan. The cushions seem to be filled with balls, seeds or something like that and are very uncomfortable. The air circilation in the bathroom is always on and can be pretty noisy. The room key is a paper (!) card and the staff urged me not to bend or fold it. The staff does speak English, or at least gives it a try. Do mind that this hotel is a little off centre, so the level of understaning English may leave something to be desired. So while this hotel wasn't a steal at this price, it did feel very Italian to me.

I agree with the majority of positive reviews here. I had a very nice room with a view of Tokyo Tower.

However a warning for those people staying in the in-between seasons (spring and autumn). I was there during a warm spell in April, however the air-con is centrally controlled and set on heating. (The girl at the front desk read from a prepared script in English basically saying it's April therefore the heating is on regardless of the actual weather).

So I was left with the choice of sweltering at night or opening the window (which meant it was very noisy with a construction site nearby).

In other hotels in a similar price range you do have much more control over the temperature in your room.

We stayed here for 3 nights.
Pros:
*Good location, close to many train stations, a nice 25-min walk to Ginza/Imperial Palace, a 10-min walk to Tokyo Tower, right next to a convenience store
*Spotlessly clean, not big but a systematic room with nice and simple decor, laundry facilities on the top floor in the public bath area
*Friendly and efficient staff

Cons:
*The all-you-can-eat dinner at the restaurant was pretty average.
*This is essentially an upgraded Japanese business hotel. The pillow is quite low (just one) and the bed quite firm. I personally like it but some might find this difficult.

Overall a great hotel in this price range. We had a great start to our 10-day holiday in Japan thanks to this hotel. Thank you!

3日間泊まりました。
良い点:
*ロケーション たくさんの駅に近く、銀座、皇居などへ25分で散歩でき、東京タワーも10分。コンビニもとなりです。
*小さめですがシステマティックな部屋で、とても清潔でした。内装もシンプルかつモダンです。コインランドリーが最上階の浴場についていたので助かりました。
*スタッフもフレンドリーでした

残念な点:
*バイキングの夕食をいただきましたが、残念ながらあまり美味しくありませんでした。
